The CPU has not been informed that the pump was changed and will keep the light on until it is reset . Use a code reader for this purpose

Change pump hydraulic to electric jacks

I would contact the MFG for their recommendations for changing to electric jacks. Is your current hydraulic system an electric pump or hand? You might want to consider an electric hydraulic pump. Availability for the snow plow community is high. Their reliability is well known.

Intermittent popping sound from engine on acura 2001 cl 3.2 type s

Last time serviced? Fuel filter changed? Sounds like a fuel
delivery problem. High or low pressure from fuel pump. So could be fuel pump, or more problems from the fuel pump relay. There may be a fuel pressure regulator that is not working right. Otherwise some problem with timing. Last timing belt change? Check Owner's manual and service records.

1998 yukon hard start/jerking at hyway speed why.

IT sounds to me like the two most likely possibilities are the electric fuel pump... or the fuel filter.. If changing the fuel filter doesn't help, you will probably have to go to a shop and have them check fuel pump pressures. To avoid a misdiagnosis, it might be better to just go to a shop where they can hook their computer up to your vehicle for an analysis... Though some shops might change the fuel pump for you simply at your request, changing the fuel pump is too big of a deal to just change to see if it helps... Good luck..

I have a 2001 hundaii accent GS 1.6 liter that has intermittent losses of power. I put a can of high quality fuel injecter cleaner in tank. It acts like it is out of fuel or flooding. Check engine light...

The first thing I would look at would be the fuel filter. Not sure exactly where it's located on your Hundaii but in most cases it can be located under the driver's side just in front of the rear wheel. This is by far the least expensive of fixes and chances are it has never been changed if you haven't done it yourself. Hope this helps.

My toyota corolla NZE121 has P/S sign on the dashboard and the steering is hard. What is that problem? What should I do to fix that problem/

This shows that the POWER STEERING is faulty as the fluid pressure is low . This can be due to leak in the fluid line or fault in the pump. You must check and see the belt to the pump or the motor drive- if electric. If belt is worn reset., If not fill fluid.
Request that if the initial checks are not clear to the fault you might need the help from the Service for opinion and estimate.

Steps replacing a 1985 grand marquis fuel pump for first time alone thanks

See Figure 1
Two different electric fuel pump configurations were used on fuel injected models. One consists of a low pressure in-tank boost pump in conjunction with an external, frame-mounted high pressure pump. The low pressure pump is used to provide pressurized fuel to the inlet of the high pressure pump and helps prevent noise and heating problems. System pressure is controlled by a pressure regulator mounted on the engine.
The other configuration consists of an in-tank high pressure pump which does not utilize a boost pump.

In-Tank Pump
See Figures 2, 3 and 4

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Depressurize the system and drain as much gas from the tank by pumping out through the filler neck.
  3. Raise and support the rear end on jackstands.
  4. Disconnect the fuel supply, return and vent lines at the right and left side of the frame.
  5. Disconnect the wiring to the fuel pump.

Fig. Fig. 4: Removal of electric fuel pump

  1. Support the gas tank, loosen and remove the mounting straps. Remove the gas tank.
  2. Disconnect the lines and harness at the pump flange.
  3. Clean the outside of the mounting flange and retaining ring. Turn the fuel pump lock ring counterclockwise and remove.
  4. Remove the fuel pump.

To install:
  1. Clean the mounting surfaces. Put a light coat of grease on the mounting surfaces and on the new sealing ring. Install the new fuel pump.
  2. Installation is in the reverse order of removal. Start the vehicle and check electric fuel pump operation. Check for fuel leaks.

High Pressure External Pump
See Figure 5
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Depressurize the fuel system.
  3. Raise and support the rear of the vehicle on jackstands.
  4. Disconnect the inlet and outlet fuel lines.
  5. Detach the electrical harness connection.
  6. Bend down the retaining tab and remove the pump from the mounting bracket ring.
  7. Install in reverse order. Make sure the pump is indexed correctly in the mounting bracket insulator. Start the vehicle and check electric fuel pump operation. Check for fuel leaks.

I have a 99' F250 Super Duty 7.3 and i just changed the oil as soon as i started the truck the 'service engine soon ' light came on. I have put 4 different scanners on and no codes came up. I drove it and...

Try repriming your fuel system. On some diesels, when you replace fuel filters, you have to prime them. I dont see how that affects your oil though. Did you put all 15qts of oil in?

How do i fit new fuel pump

the first thing is to figure out which pump... there is a transfer pump (in the fuel tank) and a high pressure pump (under the right rear of the car) get under the car and have someone turn the key to "run"... if you HEAR a humming sound coming from the pump that you can SEE, then it is most likely the transfer pump... if you hear NOTHING then remove the boot on the pump and check for voltage on the positive terminal using a light or a meter. If no voltage then check fuse or the fuel pump relay. (hint: you should hear a "clicking" sound with your ear close to the fuse panel when you turn the key...) VW fuel pumps are really reliable as long as you don't have too much dirt or water in the tank. Eliminate the electrical circuit and high pressure pump as suspects before looking at the transfer pump. Hope this helps.. (oh, and have a clamp handy when changing the high pressure pump to avoid a huge fuel spill!)

I had a new water pump installed on my 2005 jeep grand cherokee laredo as it was leaking. After the installation, the temperature gage is still running hot. Could it be the thermostat?

Thought I answered this one already. but here's the short version. Yes , change the t stat after servicing wp. They become unreliable after any high temps (above normal). Check the electric fan, and the mechanical fan to make sure both are working properly. If all else fails. remove radiator and back flush. often overheat or high temps can loosen block rust and obstruct part of the radiator core.
When re-filling, turn heater on high to eliminate air pockets in system.
Good luck with it
